COMMITMENT N°7 - ENVIRONMENT



CEPOVETT Group has made recycling and the end-of-life of textile products a priority area of its CSR policy.

Along with high-profile partners, we put forward solutions that are innovative, tailored, and socio-economically and environmentally focused. We collect, collate and recycle work clothing at the end of their life cycle by implementing sustainable textile recycling solutions.
